1965 Austin Healey 3000 BJ8 for sale
British Racing Green (BRG) is the perfect color for an Austin Healey 3000. as these pictures show! You can't buy gas or park it without one or more people giving you the high sign or reminiscing about one that they owned or rode in back in the day…
And this gem is a “driver. not a trailer queen: been driven at least once a month for the 10 years that I've owned it. and never in the rain. The original owner was from southern California. and I bought it from the second owner in Arizona. so it's a “desert” car without a spot of rust anywhere.
Mechanically it has been maintained perfectly. as the 10 year of service records document. Was repainted just before I bought it in 2007. and a local foreign car expert here in Santa Fe went through a complete mechanical update in 2008: new brake pads & shoes. new drive shaft U-joints. resealed the timing cover. gearbox. & exhaust manifold. new suspension bushings. radiator hoses. etc. Will include the full service receipt details for every year I owned it. including Hemmings' overly-expensive. extra-Zinc synthetic oil. I only use Ethanol-free gasoline which saves all the original rubber & plastic. Also included is the original owner's manual. shop manual and a nice collection of magazine articles & publications on the history of this model.
This BJ8 is completely stock with many very rare original items including the original tonneau cover & boot. British Motor Corporation AM radio (the local AM music stations suck. but the radio works great). 4-speed trans with electronic Laycock overdrive. telescopic steering wheel. original wood dash. etc. The few non-stock items are:
• Electronic ignition system (no more points to adjust)
• Chrome spoke wheels (original painted ones are included)
• Halogen headlights & parking lights (safety first)
• Stainless steel mufflers & exhaust pipes (will never rot)
• Extra firewall insulation (gets hot here in the summer)
• Multiple-blade radiator fan (ditto)
Other than these items. the car is totally original – not a restored re-creation. but completely original. Starts and runs flawlessly – come to Santa Fe for a test drive and it will blow your mind on these mountain roads!
